I'm trying to develop an API which will allow me to select one of several numbering schemes (serial numbers). The problem is that all the examples have me building an add-in which handles the Serial Number generation as opposed to just generating it from one of the existing serial numbers set up via Admin Tool. The reason I don't want to use a custom S/N generator, is because I don't want to loose the ability to generate new numbers via Copy Tree and Move Tree.

Writing an VB.NET Add-In with Visual Studio it takes much time time to test the application due the fact that SolidWorks need to start and you have to open a file. Is there a method to avoid this?

Ok, I am attempting to become more dangerous than I already am. I am learning to create a property tab with PTB and have come to an issue that stumps me. I want to enter the weight as a custom property but I want to truncate it. Setting "Weight" to be (SW-Mass) will give my weight but it goes to 6 decimal points.

I modelled a minivan, and I would like to study the heat transfer within the vehicle (radiation from the sun, convection from external air, and conduction into the vehicle, all simultaneously). I just wanted some guidance on whether I should use flow simulation, or use the thermal analysis tool? At the end, I want to know the heat flux, temperature gradient/distribution, and analyze the transient and steady state responses.

Ever since I started using solidworks i never managed to avoid this issue. Its the same on lots of different hardware and its been a constant problem. Image quality, that should be saved with a part, is not saved.

I am working with a manual, where I need an assembly drawing. I have 3 step files, one of a panel board, one of a cable tray and the third one of a wall bracket. Now I would need to combine them all in one .smg file to be able to get the parts in the correct perspective. I have managed to import them all in one file.

sheet metal extrude So below I have a sheet metal part that i would like to extrude up to the face of the panel with the radius on it. I can do that but when i move the radius farther from the origin i need that extrude to extend with it and i can't seem to figure that out. the way i did it before was to extrude the front face forward past the radius then i used a cut extrude to follow the radius, But if i have to move the radius panel out there's a void there then.

I have a Lenovo P40 Yoga, and it runs Solidworks very well. But as soon as I put an HDMI cable in order to expand my display to my monitor-free (ACER), it becomes horrible ! When I click, it multiplies windows !

Hola, tengo un problema de visualizacion en un dibujo. Al momento de hacer una vista explosionada de un ensamblaje me encuentro con que una de las partes cambia de lugar al cambiar su estilo de visualizacion; si lo pongo "Sin lineas ocultas" se ve correctamente, pero si lo cambio a "Sobreado con aristas" el color de dicha pieza cambia de lugar. Es un problema muy molesto que tengo hace varias semanas y estaria agradecido de si alguien tiene una posible solucion.

I am trying to make a temporary work around to update my Part's material based on a custom property. I need to do this since I am creating models through DriveWorks but I cannot get the functionality for DW and SW correct when selecting from custom materials. I can still drive the Custom Property "DWMaterial" from DW and I can also setup DW to run a macro before finishing the part. The only problem being I do not understand macros enough to write my own... any help?

A clockwise thread is created and it's mirror image is obtained. The mirror image seems in counter clockwise direction. I wish to know whether it is correct to do so. Part file is attached.

We have a need to temporarily turn off all email notices generated in EPDM. We have not found a global method in the SW help pages. The "Message System" feature seems to be based on an individual user only. Ideally there would be a "disable notices from all users and tasks" feature in admin screen, which could later be enabled without need to re-establish either user-specified notices or automatic notices within tasks.

Does anyone know how I can get back the direction arrows to evenly space out the components? It will allow me one auto-space move per set but then the arrows change direction and I cannot get them back. The components are then stuck in this position and I cannot move them in any direction.

Whilst using Solidworks electrical to modify a drawing for another job , I have the issue that after moving around a few items on screen hundreds of horizontal lines appear on screen. Every time I try to delete them more appear until eventually I have 700+ lines on screen and my program freezes. Has anyone any idea why this happens and how I can stop it. We have 2 CAD computers and the issue happens on both of them.

Sheet metal inner corners relief I'm starting to familiarize myself with sheet metal as I've never worked with it before. I was wondering if there is a way to get the following feature: (note this was not done using sheet metal, as it does not allow it)
